REGATRON’s New Generation of Programmable Regenerative DC Power Supplies Is Now Available

The new G5.RSS series features high control dynamics, an exceptional accuracy, a nominal output voltage of up to 3000 VDC, and a wide current-voltage range with an auto-ranging factor of 3. You get the best value for your investment.

The modular and finely graded G5.RSS series is bidirectional regenerative and can operate in CV, CC, CP, CR, and Ri-Sim control modes. It is universally applicable and therefore suitable for all industrial and scientific applications in laboratories as well as on test benches and production lines. Adjustable filter time constants, optional software, programming and communication interfaces as well as safety functions allow the G5.RSS power supplies to be optimally adapted to the customer application requirements.

Digital Electronic High-Power Programmable Power Supplies

The output of an individual power supply is in the range from 0…18 kW to 0…2000+ kW, up to 3000 VDC. The advantageous modularity of REGATRON power supply solutions allows the system to be easily adapted to ever changing test requirements. Not only is it possible to reconfigure between parallel, series, and mixed operation, but also to expand the system with additional power supply units or to split it into smaller units. Therefore, the purchase of a REGATRON power supply is a solid investment for the future.

Features

Adjustable controller settings and the integrated 8-channel digital scope assist the user to easily achieve optimal system behavior. The G5.RSS series offers the possibility to store, edit, and recall any device configuration on board the power supply.

Driving Vehicle Electrification Forward with REGATRON’s New Drivetrain Tester Series

Developing and testing the powertrain and its components plays a key role in the design of hybrid and electric vehicles. Test systems for electric drive components or even for the complete drivetrain must offer a wide range of functions, exceptional dynamics and comprehensive safety features. In many cases, an easy integration of the test systems into an existing control platform is a prerequisite. Frequently changing test conditions require a high degree of flexibility in terms of power, voltage and current. In addition, workplace safety regulations require the ability to quickly and easily bring a running system to a safe state in case of an emergency.

The output of an individual G5.DT Drivetrain Test System is in the range from 0…18 kW to 0…2000+ kW, up to 1500 VDC. Higher voltages are available on request. The advantageous modularity of REGATRON power supply solutions allows the system to be easily adapted to ever changing test requirements. Not only is it possible to reconfigure between parallel, series, and mixed operation, but also to expand the system with additional power supply units or to split it into smaller units. Therefore, the purchase of a REGATRON Drive Train Tester is a solid investment for the future.
